Since May is Boodie’s birthday month, I wanted to feature her for a Throwback Thursday. She would have been 22 this year. As it was, she had a good run and made it to nearly 20.
She was semi-feral when my human brought her home from a rescue to foster her. She doesn’t officially count as a foster fail because the main reason she wound up staying was because only one potential adopter met her, and the rescue never called for her again. So she wound up being sort of the accidental extra cat. She was very shy but my human found that she loved to play, and that helped her be more comfortable with people.
She was always a laid back cat, unlike some other unsocialized cats that tend to be nervous. That’s probably because she was at least part ragdoll, the breed known as “floppy cats.”
She was always quick to claim a cat bed anywhere she found one.
Because of her playful nature, Boodie was the only one who was able to create a painting from the cat art kit that Sparkle got as a promotion.
And Boodie remained playful her whole life. She turned out to be a fun, quirky cat who became braver as she got older. She actually wound up liking my human’s then-new boyfriend quite a bit in the last year and a half of her life.
Here are the three of them, Sparkle, Binga and Boodie, a couple of years before I was around. They did have lots of good days hanging out.

She is (was) so beautiful!
This was a real real treat! I loved the dew ties we saw Boodie, and here we see better what a total beauty she was. WOW! Seeing all three girls is a great treat too…as well as beautiful Boodie by herself.
Boodie was SURE a very impressive cat. We enjoyed your memory of her…

That’s the most I new of Boodies life. She was certainly beautiful and deserved a good home with love and care as every cats does. Sure she’s claimed the biggest cat bed in paradise
Such a beauty. I can’t believe the rescue never got in touch again. It’s a good thing she landed with your human!

Nice to see Boodie. I had not seen her art work, very cool. I love the photo of all 3 hanging out together. I had no idea Binga and Sparkle got along that well. XO
How nice to see Boodie’s pretty blue eyes in that first
picture. Usually, we weren’t able to see the color of her
eyes. And, that last picture with the three of them was a
nice one too…three friends enjoying the sun spots.
Happy birthday at the bridge Boodie
Boodie was beautiful! So nice to see her today.
